a low-overhead job.

2 x Nikon D700 = $2,700 + tax each.

Seven f/2.8 & f/1.4 lenses = $10k+

$4,462 in lighting, off-camera flash triggers & light modifiers

$23k in gear altogether

$450/year in liability insurance.

Advertising costs like $900 per table at bridal shows.

I'm so glad I'm in a low-overhead line of work!


Assuming your equipment doesn't spontaneously combust, most of this kit only needs infrequent replacement. You don't need $4,500 of lighting to shoot a wedding. You can, but do not need to.
